The bad think about doing it in grub-installer is that it wouldn't
cover other bootloaders. I think it ought to be done in apt-install
(that is inside of d-i-utils) so we could have something like: "assume
installed" preseeding that could be used for it. And then
live-installer would be responsable for preseeding it if needed.
What do you think?
